Based on the reviews we thought lets give it a try but there were just too many failings.. Rooms 7 and 8 which we occupied smelt musty, shower doesn't drain properly in unit 8 and overflowed. Rooms actually slope so much that you are constantly aware of it and fixtures were broken or poorly maintained. On the second day the... More

I had high hopes for this place based on a few of the reviews, but I have to give this a '1' rating as one of the worst places I have ever stayed. After hiking all over the property looking for #2, I found I was given the key to #1 so I had to hike back to the office... More

I will say the room I stayed in was clean and cute but I did not find the people to be all that friendly and there is no cable television and on top of that the wireless internet did not work either . . We had a dvd player that did not seem to work very well and the local... More

As an avid skier,who also worked on the mountain, i spent many weeks here years ago. Milly and fred are great people who really care! It has been many years, taking family there this year to teach my son to ski. If your looking for a nice clean place that you can afford this is it. Please do not think... More

The folks that run this motel were very nice and friendly. The surroundings are beautiful (on a hilltop about 3 miles outside Rutland), and it was a terrific place to stay. The room was nice, and the price was reasonable. The apple turnover and fresh cider were a great surprise although I didn't realize it was self-service and waited around... More

My husband and I just returned from a weekend at Mendon Mountain Orchards Motel, and have been vacationing in Killington for 6 years. It's a HUGE challenge to find an affordable "base" to ski from, that is clean and worth the money. This place does it. It's basic, for sure, but we will definitely be going again. Usually cheaper lodging... More

This little hotel is a great value. It is clean and the staff who run it are just great! At 8 am they have fresh apple turnovers at their store. I took an early morning walk with a friiendly neighbor through the orchard. We had coffee and turnovers at the store. I took fresh apple pies home to my family... More

First of all, this motel is located on an apple orchard, so you get the unusual feature of beautiful apple trees as the scenery for a motel. This place isn't fancy, and you have to be a little patient and appreciate the genuineness and the personal warmth. The place is run by an older woman who, from what I've read... More

We got rained out of camping and spent one night at the Mendon Mountain Orchards Motel. I had researched a place beforehand just in case and decided on the Mendon b.c I thought it seemed charming and it definitely was. Our room was a decent size, with two double beds. It was clean. The bathroom was very clean and seemed... More
